37.Xr bsnmpd 1
38.Sh LIBRARY
39.Pq begemotSnmpdModulePath."vacm" = "/usr/lib/snmp_vacm.so"
40.Sh DESCRIPTION
41The
42.Nm snmp_vacm
43module implements SNMPv3 View-based Access Control Model MIB as defined in
44RFC 3415. The module is used to manage the internal lists of SNMPv1, v2c and
45v3 user names and groups and their access rights to fetch or modify the values
46of the MIB objects maintained by
47.Nm bsnmpd
48and the modules loaded in the daemon.
49The module must be loaded for
50.Nm bsnmpd
51to implement proper view-based access control. If the module is not loaded,
52access is granted to all configured SNMPv1 & SNMPv2c communities and SNMPv3
53USM users.
54.Sh IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
55An entry in any table implemented by this MIB may be created by setting the
56relevant RowStatus column to createAndGo (4) - in fact, any other value for
57those columns in a SET operation will cause an error. When an entry is created,
58any of its columns that is not used as index, is set to the default value as
59specified in the SNMP-VIEW-BASED-ACM-MIB. All entries maintained by the module
60are persistent after reboot if created via
61.Nm bsnmpd 's
62config file, otherwise entries created via SNMP are lost after reboot.
63A short description of the objects in the MIB follows.
64.Bl -tag -width "XXXXXXXXX"
65.It Va vacmContextTable
66A read-only table that consists of a list of SNMP contexts available in
67.Nm bsnmpd .
68.It Va vacmSecurityToGroupTable
69The table contains a list of SNMPv1, v2c and v3 user names and the groups
70they belong to.
71.It Va vacmAccessTable
72The table contains a list of SNMP contexts to groups mappings and respectively
73the names of the SNMP views under those contexts, to which users in the group
74are granted read-only, read-write access or receive notifications for the
75objects under the subtree in the relevant view.
76.It Va vacmViewTreeFamilyTable
77The table contains a list of SNMP views, i.e. entries specifying the OID of a
78MIB subtree and whether access to the objects under this subtree is to be
79allowed or forbidden.
